Coalitions Creating Equity (CCE)

In 2017, the Alberta Human Rights Commission held meetings throughout the province to speak with individuals and organizations involved in human rights. The goal was to identify and better understand the human rights issues that were most important to those communities. The comments from the five communities visited are included in a summary report, Your Voice: Advancing Human Rights in Alberta

In response to what we heard, the Commission partnered with community organizations in developing the Coalitions Creating Equity (CCE) initiative. This two-year pilot project, in partnership with the five communities, will help advance human rights and address local human rights issues and priorities. This initiative includes both local and province-wide approaches to deal with equity, racism and human rights.

Regional networks will engage the community, support leadership development, and build capacity in communities  to prevent racism and discrimination and decrease inequality.

This work will be led by the following agencies in these regions:
Lethbridge       5th on 5th Youth Services
Calgary           Action Dignity
Red Deer        City of Red Deer WIC
Edmonton       REACH Edmonton
Wood Buffalo  Wood Buffalo Regional Advisory Committee on Inclusion, Diversity and Equity

Our vision is a vibrant and inclusive Alberta where the rich diversity of people is celebrated and respected, and where everyone has the opportunity to fully participate in society, free from discrimination.
